Conservation and Coon Hnntin?.
The St. Louis Republic has done a
good service to the cause of conser
vation In calling to public attention
the lamentations of Bill Smoon of
Arkansas, whose soul is troubled be
cause thinning of the timber threat
ens the perpetuity of the honorable
and ancient sport of coon hunting.
This phase of the great problem, so
far as our knowledge goes, has not
before received consideration. It
presfrea, therefore, all tlie harder for
prompt attention, and It should get
it from the high a poetics of conserva
tion. Coon bunting cannot be aacrificcd
and certainly the timber must not bo.
We half believe the Republic has a
more direct Interest In the appeal
than its seemingly unselfish cham
pionship of BUI Smoon's case would
indicate. Coon hunting has been the
pre-eminent sport In Missouri as well
as Arkansas for these many years,
ever since, In fact, coon skins became
legal tender down in the Ozarks, and
it is quite likely that the editor of
the Republic, himself, keeps a "puck
But BUI Smoon Is like a good many

down and let the dogs catch him.
The more coona caught, of course,
the fewer trees .you have, but Bill

government. It ought to provide
some way of making two trees grow
where but one grew before In these
days of rip-snorting progress and
The Republic suggests the solution
let some champion of the tree fig
ure out a new way of getting the

swinging ceaaelesely by. adopting
every known mode of travel from
foot to the awlft-fieetlng railroad
train, which was not available for

Is now doing It, and at least three
aviators are attempting it In air
ships. The lure of adventure has
prompted many to undertake this
Atlantlc-to-Pactflc Journey, but U
must not be Imagined that the Argo
nauts were the only ones to go in
search of the golden fleece. Per
haps that Is robbing the exploit of
some of Its glsmor, but It Is not tak
ing away any of the truth. No man
haa yet lost money walking or driv
ing an ox team from one ocean to
another. The aviator who get there
first will be handed the modent sum
of IS0.O0O and the little Abernathy
boy will have another book written
and set up for wale when they make
the mole at San Francisco and whip
their ponies up Market street.

the lark of the, trip, the money side

Business and Politics.
Senator Stephenson of Wisconsin,
whose election to the senate la Just
now being officially Investigated, haa
never attempted to conceal the fact
that be spent $107,000 In his pri
mary election campaign, but he does
deny that the money wan-wrongfully
or Illegally expended. At least, that Is
what hla managers tell him and he
says he depended entirely on them for
results. Insisting that they stay within
the law. The senator Justified this
course by explaining that he Is presi
dent of a doten or more big business
concerns and necessarily he mutt de
pend upon hla subordinates for the
details of management and that he
conducted hla campaign for the sen
ate on exactly the same principle.
One need not question the sin
cerity or honesty of Senator Stephen
son to uncover hla error in assuming
that politics and business are subject.
In this relation to the same rules.
His dozen business enterprises are hia
own private affair he need not pay
as scrupulous attention to their op
erations. A seat In the United JJtatee
senate la not entirely hia private af
fair. It Involves the business cf the
public, of the people, even the people
outalde of the atate of Wisconsin.
Senator Stephenson Insists he got
bla election fairly. Whether he 4id or
not. It seta a questionable precedent
In the politics of a democracy foe any
roan to turn $107,000 over to polit
ical campaign managers to spejjd as
they please to get him a seat In the
senate. That, If followed, woaltj shut
out of all consideration for tike of
fice the man who did not tUve, or
could not get, a large amuuat of
mosey, who might easily be the bet
ter qualified man for the place.
Impoi Lance of Pure Food Lawn.
Inside friction, that is disagree
ment as to the meaning of the law
and aJf-o as to Its validity among
some of thope charged with Its en
forcement, is supposed to have
hindered operation of the Sherman
anti-trunt law for a long time. Now,
then, the fame question had been
raided respecting our newer pure
food and drug laws. Kvidently
President Taft proposed to lake no
chances on letting the laws suffer
from any such unworthy and unim
portant a cause. His official house
cleaning in the Department of Agri
culture, therefore, may be expected
to have a prompt and beneficent
The president has done a good Job
in his vigorous handling of this offi
cial family mesa. He has cleared
away some obstacles, we may well
believe, from a free operation of
these very important laws.
Laws that look to the health and
life of the people cannot be sacri
ficed to selfish interest. It requires
no argument nowadays to convince
the ordinary man of intelligence
that this country needed statutes to
protect it from food and drug adul
terations. Even with what Impeded
administration of those laws the
country has bad it baa profited
tremendously and when they git to
working with full precision It should
profit more. Perhaps we shall event
ually come to Dr. Wiley's proposition
of a national board of health, but
for the time being the machinery
the government now has for carrying
out these measures ran do very good

Turkey on the term? of the treaty of
San Stffsno. for it.- Miare In the deal
Italy was granted the right of "pacific
pcnetiation" in Tripoli. "Pacific penetra
tion" is a diplomatic term for special
trade rlghta beyond and above native
regulation or restriction. Italy worked
the privilege lo the limit and beyond,
causing more or less strife among the
native.:. ,vho could not keep pace with
II. e imaders. Ah the small boy ho gets
his hea.l under the canvas usually wiggles
his body into the circus tent, so Italy,
finding the trade worth while, concluded
to follow privileges with control by force
of arms. Whether the province is worth
the cost of war depends on the angle of
vision. It is the last section of North
Africa that has hitherto escaped the land
grabbers of Europe. It is contiguous to
taly. and Italy needs it to make possi
ble the succe of her African plans.

Tripoli belonged successively to Car

passed Into the hand of the Vandals,
who reached the Mediterranean through
the Iberian peninsula, and the Greeks.
The Arabs captured it In (W4, when the
Moslems were moving westward to take

Tripoli has no permanent rivers, but
there are many springs and the dry
water courses fill up during the rainy

although it has more of a Mediterranean
than an African character and during the
winter anow occasionally lies on the
mountains near the coast, while there

exports are wool, oil and cattle, although
gold, ostrich feathers, Ivory and rubber

The city of Tripoli, the capital of the

Its harbor is accessible to vessels draw

oriental, lies In a fertile plain. , It la a
